Two Poems

Happy XMAS
                                    “Costly freebies”
                                    —Jules Boykoff, Hymn #747

Why encumber the reindeer with Santa?
Wheras from a global standpoint distance drives costs polar.
Data suggesting warming, gifts insubstantial:
the managers typically they manage the business from a great distance.
All foreign entrants are equally illegal;
we can help them plot the surface we can’t help
them make it home. If you would like to “guesstimate” a distance,
we can help to plot the surface
but time constraints encumber work.
We had just enough time to get clear of the water tower
and it’s hard to think of work.

Revered like santa in china
but manufactured somewhere else, because of cost of Fibre.
Language of resistance, or quitters
who refused to go the distance?
We simplify the problems by approximation,
examine each problem with at least three different solutions.
Foreign institutions with the right to encumber your credit–
that hurts the other network’s network business.
Too many of these amendments start to look bad for fibre.
We have lots of the same data, we can work
to plot the distance, but why encumber Santa
with foreigners of this caliber? Why encumber
him with forerunners at all?



Rules for Drinking Forties

bitch stop calling me bitch you BITCH
when i woke up this morning there were six empty forties

It’s a great resource for hippies

If you could vote for every feelgood in the “Weird” category
Once the forties are empty, you can untape your hands
…in the 1970s…fundamentally a cultural rather than a political protesxt

It’s a great resource for hippies
empty nesters in their late forties
We will be coming to Dallas this weekend
when I woke up this morning there were six empty forties

the term is generally seen as pejorative
Do you have sound on your Web pages?

If you were drafted by the hippy movement or the military, what would you do?
Witch might shit out after six cans of creamed corn
Do you have sound on your Web pages yet?

Many of the houses lay vacant and have so for years
